- Gorillas in the Congo
- Namib Desert in Namibia

Following on from this workshop, your pupils can write a travel blog about everything they have learnt and experienced. Our literacy bundles include lesson plans, example texts and LKS2 and UKS2 writing checklists.

Which Curriculum Subjects do you cater for?

Curriculum topics available: Creative writing.

At PrimeVR, we understand how difficult it can be to inspire children with their writing. We aim to create excitement by virtually transporting your class to different locations across Africa! Not only will we provide your class with exciting facts about these locations but we'll also provide them with an experience to ignite their imagination. Give VR a go and see how it helps with creative writing!

Following on from our workshop, you can download our literacy lesson pack, which encourages children to write about their favourite place across Africa they've visited. Each lesson pack includes an instruction sheet, model text and writing checklist (relevant to LKS2 or UKS2).

What activities are available during group visits?

What size groups do you cater for?

In line with government guidance, we can deliver a maximum of six workshops throughout the school day with a maximum of 15 pupils in each workshop. We bring in 16 headsets and each pupil will have their own during the workshop. Each headset will be cleaned thoroughly with anti-bacterial wipes in between each use. We recommend workshops lasting a maximum of 30 minutes.

Do you offer on-site classroom facilities?

We deliver our workshops on the school-site. We require one classroom or small space for the day.

Do you cater for visitors with Special Educational Needs (SEN)?

Yes. We've worked with a number of SEN schools and the response/feedback to VR has been fantastic.
